A claim made by Hollywood journalist AJ Benza that American actor Jamie Foxx has been left "paralyzed and blind" after taking the Covid-19 vaccine has sparked concern online. While appearing on May 31's episode of the Dr. Drew online show, Benza revealed how the 55-year-old has been allegedly suffering from several health complications.

Quoting his source as "someone in the room" with knowledge about Foxx's health, AJ Benza said:

"Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it. The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind."

He continued:

"I am thinking, 'Is that why he blew up on the set a week before this medical emergency happened?' Is that why he fired three or four people because he had had it with these mandates?"
